Luke Kuechly is coming back to the Carolina Panthers to be part of the 2022 radio broadcast for seven games. Kuechly was selected by Carolina in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft and earned Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. He played eight NFL seasons, all with the Panthers, before retiring after the 2019 season.
Kuechly will be in the booth for six home games (Week 1 against the Browns, Week 4 against the Cardinals, Week 5 against the 49ers, Week 7 against the Buccaneers, Week 12 against the Broncos, and Week 15 against the Steelers), and the road trip to his hometown of Cincinnati (Week 9). Jim Szoke will continue to act as the third man in the booth for the games Kuechly doesn’t do.
